[OUT OF DATE]How To: Run PhysX in Windows 7 with ATi Cards - Page 60

post #591 of 1230
GPU-Z can show you PhysX ticked regardless of whether or not it is actually working. Just follow the instructions pasted several pages ago and make sure that when you do the cleanup all the files are gone prior to installing the PhysX runtime.
post #592 of 1230
Hi guys, I'm new in this forum and I need your help. I have the good old Ageia PhysX card by Asus, it worked just fine with the 8.04.25 drivers, but now It can't. The card itself is OK, I ran the integrated diagnostics everything says PASS.
Before it was working in UT3, Vantage and other PhysX.
What I've changed:
Vista>7
5770>5850
i7 920>1055T
I even tried those tools provided in post #1 but nothing happend, did they work only with actual VGA card but now with ageia?
I use original and activated Windows, I checked the molex connector, everything seems to be fine.
Please help

I followed the instructions, to a tee, in the OP...I'll scan back a few pages to see if anything has changed since then.

Uninstallation was done in "Safe Mode" and Driver Cleaner Pro was used to clean everything out, at least 8 times now!

One thing I think that happened when I attempted to do this was that despite running driver cleaner, I still had to manually delete some files in the folder in safe mode.

I'll repost the instructions I followed to save you some time:

1. Clean the drivers completely, no C:\\Program files\\Nvidia Corporation folders remaining, nothing. If they are there, manually delete them.
2. Install latest drivers, I used 258.96 and reboot.
3. Install PhysX and DO NOT reboot.
4. Run the 104ff mod
5. Enjoy

Hope this helps!

Ok so i have been running physx mod for a while no with no probs until today when i downloaded mafia 2 demo off steam.

As part of the download steam updated my nvidia physx software and since then i have been un-able to use my 8800gtx for physx.

I have tried both the 10.3 and 1.04 patches im sure the 10.4 should be working,anyway physx is now dissabled.

I earlier uninstalled all nvidia drivers/software and reinstalled 256.96 and used to 10.4 to patch,a quick test with a physx app showed gpu physx to be enabled,great!!!

Tried to start up mafia 2 and was met with an error and explanation that steam was about to update my nvidia software so i could play the game...damn,it updated and quick test showed gpu physx disabled.

No matter how many times i run the patch or install any nvidia software i can not get mafia 2 to run on steam with physx hack enabling gpu physx in game.

Do we need a new physx mod patch allready for newest nvidia software?
If so then tell me where its at please!

And which Nvidia card are you suing to process physx?
Also which Physx mod patch are you using?

Ok the latest physx that steam installed with this game was 9.10.0512 and the 10.4 mod patch does not work with it.

I have uninstalled the new physx software(9.10.0512) and gone back to 9.10.0224,10.4 mod patch now enables gpu physx but i can not use this old physx software with mafia 2 so i take it we do need a new physx mod patch allready,damn.

Yeah i can install the latest physx drivers and the game works but with the newest physx software i can not use the 10.4 mod patch to enable gpu physx.

EDIT:
Ok i got the whole physx hybrid thing working fine with Mafia2 on steam,heres how:

1. delete the extra screen allocated to the nvidia card(if you have one)

2. Go to: Local Disk(C>Program Files>Steam>steamapps>common>mafia2-public demo>3rd and find the Physx_10.0512_9.10.0152_systemSoftware.msi

3.Run the msi first to remove the current physx software,then run again to install this new physx msi.

4.Re-allocate your extra screen to the Nvidia card(if the patch your using requires this)then patch using the patch for the drivers your using,i used patch 10.4.

5.try running a physx app to confirm that physx is running on the gpu.

This msi in the steam folder lets you play mafia 2 but also allows the physx hybrid thing aswell,steam will not try to update the new physx you installed.

There must be an error of some kind with the physx software that steam installs alongside mafia 2.
